Cosy Crochet

 

This week I have continued to work on my daisy blanket in any spare moments I have had. I am enjoying making this so much and have even found myself crocheting the odd square after a twelve hour shift! Unheard of for me, usually I am too tired to do anything after work except flop in front of the television for a short while before bed...I think I am actually addicted to making this blanket!

 

This morning it is grey and damp outside again, but I am keeping cosy inside. The wood burner is lit and I have a hot cup of tea and my crochet making me happy.

 

What have you been crocheting this week?

  1. Sounds lovely and cosy, with this awful weather. I'm still plodding along with my Springitme throw.

  2. I'm itching to start making some crochet squares so I can understand how you find it relaxing. I'm resisting though because I want to finish other things first.

  4. This looks so lovely and cosy. I love that wood burner--must be so nice in your sitting. Just perfect for making those sweet daisy squares. Enjoy!
    I'm trying to make a crocheted throw with granny chevrons. I'm still trying to decide which colours to use. By the way, I'm using Sugar 'n Cream cotton yarn which I first saw in one of your posts a few weeks ago.
    Take care.

  5. I am in between projects at the moment. I just finished my huge hexi blanket and I am kind of out of sorts cause I've been working on it for a while and now that it's all done...I really don't know what to do. I wish to start another but not sure what direction I want it to go. So far I have ripped out a ripple and a huge granny blanket....I hate when that happens. Stay warm and cozy...xx Shari

  14. There's nothing more cosy than a stove to sit and crochet by, when the rain never stops. The pastels you are using are quite delightful.

  19. Your daisy squares are gorgeous Marianne and, like Gilly, I think I've missed a post somewhere so I'll be off stravaging for a check-up on your activities. Your pic looks so lovely and cosy and just the place to be after such a long stint at work! Take care lovely, hugs, Joy xo

  30. Hi Marianne sorry I have been absent for a short while, work as usual dominates my life at present. I cannot wait to see your blanket as this is something on my list for this year along with a 1000 other things. Your fire looks so inviting Marianne, I was only saying to my husband this morning how I wished we had a real fire in our living room, there is nothing to beat it. Have a warm and toast Sunday Marianne, sending you big hugs as always
